Books in USC Libraries

Books on art and archaeology are generally in two locations.
Art and architecture books (usually those books classed in “N”) are in the Architecture and Fine Arts Library.
Most archaeology books (General archaeology is classed in CC, Greek archaeology in DF, and Roman archaeology in DG) will be found in Doheny Memorial Library.

Some materials are kept in our off-campus facility, the Grand Avenue Library, and must be requested.
